Weekly Member Memo
October 12, 2021

Winter Wineland Jan. 15-16, 2022

Sign-up via Eventbrite - this is the link  DEADLINE Oct. 22. 
We are planning the same format as Wine & Food Affair, selling tickets and making reservations via CellarPass. Tasting will be by reservation at each winery, same time slots.  You will have space to list what you are offering for the weekend, in our online program.
Additionally we will promote your Friday night tastings, winemaker dinners, wine receptions, happy hours...AND, we'd love to see wineries offer something special on Monday Jan. 17. These extra events are something you would manage on your end and sell your tickets. It's a 3-day weekend - take advantage of it.  
We have 10 signed up, our goal is 40...we're getting there.

Ticket sales will end Sun. night

Monday Oct.18 Debbie will send each winery their RSVP list with the contact info. for their guests. This is about 3 weeks prior to the event, for your catering numbers and staffing needs.
Our goal was to sell 500 tickets. We have sold 1170.
Most wineries are sold out for Saturday, but everyone has seats available for Sunday. 
When you recieve your RSVP list, you will know how much seating you still have available and you can then book those seats directly and collect your tasting fees. This should give you plenty of time to sell those seats.  
Supply pick up Nov. 3rd 9:00-2:00

Credit Card Processing - referral from member winery

Napa Payments and Consulting      Two recent articles to give you more insight
In a nutshell, they assist businesses in saving money with their existing credit card processor....without any change.  No cost unless they can save you money and no risk.  They work with your existing processor and ensure that the business' rates are optimized for the types of transactions they are running.  They may also negotiate with the processor on behalf of the business.
I am passing this contact informaiton along because they proved to be very helpful for one of our winery members.  Questions: Ken Musante, President Napa Payments & Consulting 707-601-7656.
